No matter how much we want to believe that the heart of co-dependency and recovery lies in the other person, the truth is that it lies in ourselves, in the way we allow other people's behaviors to affect us.  Replacing our self-worth in Christ with outside or external sources is not what God intended for you.  This group will provide tools to regain control of your life through Christ centered Bible teaching. Cost $20.00 includes workbook.  Additional materials will be available for purchase.  No registration required.  Childcare available -  contact Julia Yeremian

When: Mondays and Thursdays at 7:00 PM or  9:30 AM  Women only Thursdays

CASA serves abused, abandoned and neglected children, ages 8-19, who are dependents of the juvenile court system.  CASA volunteers establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.  When a child has an advocate, he/she is more likely to get needed services — and a permanent, stable home.
